Talk Acclaimed Singaporean artist Ho Tzu Nyen makes films, installations and theatrical performances that often begin as engagements with historical and philosophical texts and artifacts. His recent works are populated by metamorphic figures such as the weretiger (One or Several Tigers, 2017) and the triple agent (The Nameless, 2015) under his on-going project The Critical Dictionary of Southeast Asia. Ho sheds light on his creative process and critical investigations into Southeast Asia, which serve as the material for his latest work The Mysterious Lai Teck. Gain an appreciation for the richness of Hoâ€™s artistic practice and insights into some of his most representative works.
